    Anyone who has a pull at their comic shop should talk to the clerk there and find out how they're dealing with villains month to make sure you get the issues you want and the shop isn't stuck with hundreds of issues they can't get rid of. DC really is not thinking about the retailers when they created this ridiculous event. The Diamond order forms are already unable to properly deal with the Marvel .1s, so I don't know how this is going to work.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I couldn't concentrate on Superman unchained.

    I don't Jim's heart is in it any more.

    ^ I've felt that way about Lee for a while now. I think he's more interested in plotting than he is drawing these days. There wasn't anything that jumped out about Superman: Unchained art wise..it was no different than any of his current New 52 work. What impressed me though was the writing. Snyder is on the ball again, and it seems like, so far Lee isn't co-plotting and is just drawing. So that is good enough for me.

    I particularly liked the monologue about how it feels to fly back into the atmosphere. It really brought him what it's like to be Superman.

    I just stared reading the first JLD collected edition on my Nook a little while ago. I'm only a few pages into it, but I'm already intrigued.
    EDIT: I just looked up Shade, a character I know nothing about, and now I was wondering which version is in this series, the poet or the spy?

    So it looks like we are getting a Superman/Wonder Woman title this fall. Link

    It also features Batman stalking them.

    Interesting. Tony Daniel art! The line about Batman made me laugh.

    Another Green Lantern crossover announced.
    That promotional image looks so bad, I almost want to say this must be fake. Bleeding Cool is the only one even reporting on it right now. If it is true, UGH! Another GL crossover already? Come on! I got so sick and tired of that toward the end of Johns' run.

    Wrath of the First Lantern was pretty weak. If this one isn't any good I may have to rethink my Green Lantern purchases.

    Yeah, not a very impressive image to say the least.

    Interesting again...the new creative teams' first major "event" arc. I honestly have no interest in the GL titles. I've stated before that I really gave up after Blackest Night. The relaunch I tried to continue with it...but really wasn't feeling it. I did pick up Geoff Johns final issue and loved it. It was a great end bookmark to his run...which really should have ended after Blackest Night...but I digress. It's unfortunately really, because I am a big GL fan, but nothing they're doing with it right now interests me at all.

    Now that is fascinating. They were hinting/speculating about this earlier in the year as well. It will reportedly be written by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, and Kevin Maquire. Best thing about this for me? No Paul Levitz.

    Wow...nothing to do with the Legion at all, but still very cool, and reminding me of DC One Million. I'll still be checking this out.

    Or is it? The twist could be that those are pre-existing legion characters in the same way that the original thunderbolts turned out to be existing characters in disguise.

    ^ Yeah I was just thinking that after I typed it. Whatever the case is, this title has my interest :)

    I love Giffen and deMatteis's JL/JL Europe era of the Justice League, its my favorite era and JL/JLI/JLE are some of my favorite comics, so this is good news to me. Since its so far in the future, hopefully it can ignore most of the stupid new 52 stuff. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Wait, we agree on something? :eek:

    I love that JL era, too. Some of the most fun comics ever published.
